The IMulitlanguage Interface on Win32 systems is a little-known COM object that
provides a variety of language and conversion utilities that both supplements
and extends standard Win32 Unicode and code page support. Developed originally
to provide browser and web server features, currently dozens of methods are
available ranging from language and code page detection to conversions between
Unicode and code pages. Many of these are not otherwise supported on Win32
systems and include Asian EUC, ISCII, and the 'missing' UTF-7/8 conversions. In
this presentation we discuss the supported interfaces, show how to gain access
from Windows, Java, VB, and ASP and illustrate their uses in sample programs and
in some well-known office applications.
